1015 2nd St., Clarkston WA
Beachview is Clarkston’s largest park. It has three covered picnic areas, one with multiple barbecues, two playground areas, a skate park, a basketball court and lots of open area for recreation.
The east edge of the park overlooks the Snake River and offers scenic views of the river, the surrounding hills and Lewiston, Idaho.
A permanent monument to Chief Tamootsin (Timothy), Nez Perce Chief of the Alpowa band has been erected in the park. In 1858 Chief Timothy led Col. Steptoe’s troops to safety. When the Lower Granite Dam flooded the mouth of Alpowa Creek with slackwater, Chief Timothy’s grave was in danger of being flooded and his remains were moved to Beachview Park.
Beachview Park is the site for the annual National Night Out from Crime celebration on the first Tuesday in August.
Beachview is a perfect location for family picnics, company picnics or just a peaceful afternoon get-away.
